West Indies built from their overnight score of 69/1 and maintained the intent of scoring on a slow and dead pitch. Darren Bravo (87) and Marlon Samuels (76) were amongst the runs after a solid and yet patient display of batting that left Pakistan frustrated at times.

At close of play, the visitors were 315/6 in the first Test in Dubai and hoping to reduce their deficit of 264 runs that still lay ahead of them.

Wahab Riaz struck two quick blows on West Indies with Yasir Shah also getting two.

          MY PREDICTION ABOUT RESULT OF FIRST TEST BETWEEN STAN and WEST INDIES AT DUBAIlt;br/gt;==================================================================================lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It is noticed that pitch/wicket of dubai cricket ground is a dead wicket because it is not providing any help to any bowlers of both teams.However this pitch/wicket will slightly take turn on fourth and fifth day and 13 Nos of wickets will be available to bowlers.this test match is heading for a tame draw.on fourth day, West indies will be out around 485 or 490 just before TeanBreak.. The stan team will then try fast scoring for three hours in order to 200 Runs before declaring his innings just half hour before end of the match on fourth da but stan will loose four to seven wickets but west indies will try for a slow batting in order to draw the match by scoring hardly Around 200 RUNS by loosing 8 wickets. Hence it is my prediction that this test will be surely headng for a tame Draw.lt;br/gt;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- lt;br/gt;PREDICTION MADE BY ,lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;RAJA GHAZANFAR ALI KHAN ADOWALIYA ,lt;br/gt;( A GREAT THINKER OF STAN )lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;MA Political Sciencelt;br/gt;PRESS ESSAY WRITER,lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;House No-5, Street NO-10, IQBAL TOWN, Rawalpindi, 46300lt;br/gt;Date 15-10-2016lt;br/gt;----------------------------
